This will be my shortest and most negative review. Ever. Hopefully, it will never happen again. Yes, that's 1 Star.
The restaurant had a buffet warmer issue and a few of the burners had to be turned off. As a result, several of the entrees in the buffet were cold. At an Indian restaurant where sauce is king and things like rice and naan serve only as vehicles to get more sauce to your lips, cold entrees are pretty much the last thing you want on your plate. The flavors were also so-so, but as they were cold it's tough to really know how flavorful each dish could have been.
When I spoke with one of the employees there, she explained what happened and apologized. Carrie later asked if they offered to refund my money, but it didn't cross my mind to even ask for a refund.
As an additional note, this "buffet" only offered 20 items. That includes only five entrees, rice and naan, a few sauces (yes, these count as part of the 20 items offered), samosas and pakoras, salad and salad dressing, and two desserts. This was quite disappointing as it's easily three times smaller than the Pabla India Grill buffet in Tukwila (which was recently rated a solid 4 Stars).
Even if the food had been spectacular, I'm not sure I could recommend more than 3 Stars for this limited buffet
